Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

Mime­cast Lim­ited (NAS­DAQ: MIME), a lead­ing email and data se­cu­rity com­pany, to­day an­nounced an ex­ec­u­tive ap­point­ment to strengthen its lead­er­ship team. Ja­son Roos joins Mime­cast from Di­men­sion Data, as the new Chan­nel Di­rec­tor and will lead the chan­nel teams in Middle East and Africa. “Our chan­nel part­ners play an es­sen­tial role in how we sup­port our cus­tomers and ex­pand our busi­ness into new ver­ti­cals and mar­kets,” com­mented Bran­don Bekker, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Mime­cast Middle East and Africa.

“Hav­ing Ja­son on-board will bol­ster our ex­ist­ing chan­nel re­la­tion­ships and es­tab­lish new part­ner­ships across the Middle East and Africa. Es­pe­cially as or­ga­ni­za­tions con­tinue to migrate their on-premise email en­vi­ron­ments to cloud ser­vices like Of­fice 365.” Ja­son brings 12 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the ICT in­dus­try, lead­ing high-im­pact sales teams across the coun­try, across all ver­ti­cals. He will man­age all part­ner and al­liance based en­gage­ments, and is tasked with es­tab­lish­ing a re­newed, en­er­gised chan­nel pro­gram. In his pre­vi­ous role as Ex­ec­u­tive of Sales at In­ter­net So­lu­tions, he man­aged 13 sales teams across SME, Chan­nel, Mid-Mar­ket and En­ter­prise ac­counts and held sev­eral sales lead­er­ship roles.

Ja­son also spent three years in New York work­ing in the Cisco chan­nel with a Cisco Gold part­ner. On join­ing Mime­cast, Ja­son says: “The at­trac­tion and ex­cite­ment for me is in the com­pe­tency, scale and reach that Mime­cast pro­vides cus­tomers. Our rep­u­ta­tion, strong mar­ket­ing pres­ence and leg­endary cus­tomer­centric ser­vice de­liv­ery, will en­able an all ready ro­bust part­ner pro­gram. Ul­ti­mately we will cap­i­talise on the strong op­por­tu­nity that ex­ists in the MEA re­gion, for both Mime­cast and our Part­ner ecosys­tem, around email se­curi-
